BACKGROUND :

The Lancet Commission on synergies between universal health coverage, health security, and health promotion brings together 24 scholars from 20 countries who have expertise cutting across the three agendas, to identify a set of key policies, institutional capacities, decision-support systems, and interventions that each contributes across the three agendas and makes progress in one area amplify progress in the others. The first meeting of the Lancet Synergies Commission took place in September 2018 in London; the second in June 2019 in Heidelberg, and the third and final meeting will take place in Oslo in April 2020.

OBJECTIVES :

The Lancet Synergies Commission will present its emerging findings, including important recommendations on ways to foster greater synergies between global health programmes at national and global level. We believe our findings will be of strong interest to government policymakers, development partners, academics and others aiming to improve global health. In addition to presenting and discussing results, the panel would aim to stimulate reflection and discussion with and among the audience, and would greatly benefit from PMAC participants’ expert comments and suggestions before entering into the final stage of writing the report.
